Ogunquit Beach translates from the Abenaki language as "beautiful place by the sea." It is an apt name for the resort that offers sandy beaches framed by cliffs along the water. Swimmers will want to head to the river lagoon with a sandbar that indicates shallow water ideal for wading and swimming. The area is known for being a lesbian-, gay-, bisexual-, and transgender-friendly community. Consider browsing the boutiques near the water and enjoying refreshments with a view over the beach.

  • One of the longest and widest beach in Maine. Stunning views, no tall buildings on the beach. Houses at one end, otherwise dunes along the beach and natural growth. Fabulous beach.

  • Ogunquit is the longest, cleanest, most beautiful sandy beach on the northeast coast. My Wife and I enjoyed several long walks.

  • This is a beautiful beach even during the colder months of the year! I visited on a sunny but chilly October afternoon and the place was pretty much empty - you'll have the beach all to yourself and you can peacefully stroll along the shore, enjoying the white sand and the beauty of the Atlantic merging with the sky above!
  • A very nice and quiet beach, especially off season. Recommended for beach lovers.
  • Been there in June last year. This is a long and wide sandy beach. It is very nice and clean.
